I’m still on my jewelry making kick right now, except this week, I’ve been making hair jewelry! I will share some super easy hair jewelry tutorial next week, “like hot glue and your done kind of easy”. Today I am sharing a necklace made with pearls, Tibetan silver beads, magnesite, fluorite, TOHO beads and a fun part from a vintage silver earring.
This necklace measures a nice 28 inches long, making the toggle clasp unnecessary, but I like them, so I used one anyways. Next I started stringing $1 strands (I picked them up a few years ago, at a bargain sale) of potato pearls. I mixed three Tibetan silver beads that were about the same size as the pearls, intermittently, to help break the pearls up. Next I strung on some Starlight TOHO beads and placed a sterling silver drop that I took from a vintage earring and strung it between the Toho beads. Next I used magnesite rondelle beads in a turquoise color. Lastly I added little fluorite beads – the color of the fluorite ranges from light lavender to a milky white to almost clear. The subtle touches of color are fun make this necklace perfect for wearing anytime!
What I love about this necklace, is that it’s made with items from my stash, I didn’t go out and buy anything at all! I also love the mismatchy-ness, yet at the same time, everything complements the other, creating a sweet harmony!
